Norwegian report argues project evaluations have little influence on future allocations of ODA
A Norwegian report from the Christian Michelsens Institute (CMI) argues that ex-post evaluations of development projects have little effect on how future ODA allocations are made. In response, the Minister of International Development, Nikolai Astrup, is launching an electronic portal on which the results from ODA allocations are available to the public to make Norwegian development policy more transparent. Astrup also claims that the MFA will, going forward, utilize the lessons from the evaluation reports when allocating ODA funding.
